HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. (5/6/13)--The New Jersey Credit Union League Friday named Greg Michlig as its new president/CEO.
Michlig, a long-time employee of the Credit Union Executives Society (CUES), will begin at the league May 20.
He succeeds Paul Gentile, who left in January to become executive vice president of strategic communications and engagement at the Credit Union National Association.
"I look forward to working with the team of the New Jersey Credit Union League to continue to build the momentum that has been so evident the past several years," Michlig said. "It has been a great pleasure working with the league board of directors throughout this process, and I am eager to begin meeting with the credit union community throughout the Garden State."
Michlig began working at CUES in 1995 in advertising sales. In 1999, he left CUES to work at PEMCO as a senior account executive. In 2008, Michlig returned to CUES, where he most recently held the position of senior director of member relations.
"Greg is widely known in the industry and has a long list of associates throughout the country, which will help him to continue to move the league forward as a respected resource," said NJCUL Chairman Lou Vetere.
"He has a proven track record of initiating and cultivating relationships that will serve him well as he meets with our credit union leadership. His energy, drive and passion for the industry will be evident from the moment you meet him and he is focused on working with New Jersey's credit unions to help make all of them more successful," Vetere said.
